Event description

Description

Docs In Progress is pleased to resume our Rough Cut screening series at our new space in downtown Silver Spring.

WHAT IS SCREENING?

We will be screening and workshopping a 40 minute rough cut of:

I Am More Than My Hair
directed by Alyscia Cunningham
From the time they are young, girls are pressured into a set belief of beauty standards. Hair is certainly high on the list and is often labeled as their "crown and glory." Where does this notion fit for females with alopecia (baldness; the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows)? Where does baldness fit into beauty? Explore the stories of females who've experienced hair loss and the connection of emotions to the media's portrayal of beauty standards.

HOW IT WORKS?
In the past 15 years, Docs In Progress has workshopped more than 175 documentaries through our Rough Cut screenings (originally called Docs In Progress Screenings) where a local or visiting filmmaker shares a not-quite finished version of their documentary to a general audience. Following the screening, a facilitator from Docs In Progress leads a workshop-style feedback session where the audience provides constructive feedback on the story structure and character development of these not-quite finished documentaries. This can be essential to help filmmakers move forward with creative blocks or to get a reality check on how their story is flowing or characters are coming across. While we welcome and treasure feedback from other filmmakers or topic experts at these screenings, we are equally interested in hearing from laypeople since most filmmakers are making films for a general audience.
